Betty Niermann, P.E.
Group Leader/Civil Engineering
We moved into our new home almost 3 years ago and have been working on our yard ever since. We have relocated mature azaleas and crepe myrtles (with great success), tore out a termite attracting deck and replaced it with a (pervious) cobble pave patio, and added a few additional trees to the landscaping. Our latest project was the addition of a rain barrel and pavers under the boat canopy. It all been a labor of love to achieve a home we can be proud of.
I do have to admit many of these projects we would never of thought of, or attempted to tackle, if I had not first learned of the products (cobble pavers and rain barrels) through work. Can you name that flower by the rain barrel?
I’ll let you know when we are ready to replace our shed if anyone wants to show off their construction skills. I’ll soon have a challenge for the landscape architects in our office to see if you can help me green up a corner that is barren.
